MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMEN ATTORNEYS
Letter from the Publisher
Welcome to the 2018 edition of our annual special supplement honoring LA’s most influential women attorneys.
According to the American Bar Association, 36% of practicing attorneys today are women - and that number will continue to move toward balance when you consider that law school enrollment is currently 49% female.
Los Angeles is truly a national leader when it comes to influential women - and the field of law is no exception. There are some particularly stellar attorneys in the LA region who happen to be women and we’ve alphabetically listed 75 of the best of them here, along with some basic information about their careers, practice and some relevant recent successes they’ve achieved.
We assembled a committee of select individuals to analyze the many nominations we received this year.
These are the honorees we chose to recognize for exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.
Congratulations to the extraordinary women who made this list and thank you for working to keep the people and businesses of Los Angeles on the right track!
